Justine Nagan

Executive Director/Executive Producer
American Documentary / POV & America ReFramed
Participates in 1 Session

Justine Nagan is the Executive Director of American Documentary, Inc., and an Executive Producer on its two signature series, POV (PBS) and America Reframed (World Channel in partnership with WGBH). POV is the longest running independent documentary series on television. She is a strong believer in the important role of public media in a democracy; diversity and independent voices in popular culture and of documentary as a tool for civic dialogue, new thinking and social change. During her tenure at the organization, AmDoc has launched POV Shorts, an Artist Emergency Fund, and showed continued excellence in its long-form programming including several Oscar nominations, and Emmy, Peabody and DuPont wins.

Prior to coming to AmDoc, Justine led Kartemquin Films (KTQ) as Executive Director for seven years, as well as being an Emmy Award-winning Executive Producer on KTQ films including Life Itself and The Interrupters by Steve James and The Trials of Muhammad Ali by Bill Siegel. Justine successfully transitioned to the ED role in a historic founder-led organization, and under her leadership the organization significantly expanded its programs to assist documentary filmmakers and saw unprecedented levels of production and financial growth. During her tenure over 20 projects had world premieres including the ambitious Dupont Award-winning six-hour series Hard Earned for Al Jazeera America. She left the organization with a robust production pipeline and a strong financial footing.

With Kartemquin, she also directed Typeface, an award-winning documentary on American typography and graphic design and the doc short Sacred Transformations.

Justine has a certificate in Non-Profit Management from Harvard Business School, and a Masters from the University of Chicago in the Humanities/Cinema and Media Studies. She strives to foster a healthy and vibrant documentary ecosystem. Justine frequently presents and serves on juries and panels for events including IDFA, IDA Getting Real, the Sundance Creative Producing Summit, Hot Docs and other independent media events around the globe.
